Rock the Block Comes to 19th Street!

DPNA and Habitat for Humanity of Omaha would like to invite you to take part in our new and exciting collaborative volunteer event, Rock the Block. On Saturday, September 8, 2012, neighbors and volunteers will work together on several exterior home improvement projects in the Deer Park neighborhood. Participating households will swap yards for one full Saturday to beautify one another’s yards with the help of 50 or more volunteers. Together, we will clear unwanted brush, haul dirt, plant flowers, build relationships, and of course have loads of fun!!!
This first Rock the Block will occur on a portion of South 19th Street next door to our new Habitat for Humanity house. In addition to the added curb appeal, participating households will strengthen communication and the collective efficacy with their surrounding neighbors.  We aspire that Rock the Block will prove itself as a great piece to our Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative. If you are able, we hope you can participate in this great opportunity and witness firsthand Habitat for Humanity’s new way of engaging neighbors and volunteers.
To sign up as a volunteer, please contact Turner Morgan at 712-310-3102.
To learn more, contact Oscar Duran at 402-250-1648.
: 8-8:30am (coffee and donuts provided)
Start time: 8:30am
Lunch: 11:30am (provided)                                 
Wrap-up: 4:30pm

If you have conflicting schedules and can only work part of the way, we will still be excited to have you a part of this event.
